sunset engagement photos at sorella The first time I met Sallie I knew she was the type of bride I would LOVE to work with, even more so when I found out the venue she had chosen for her wedding. Sorella Farms is just one of those wedding venues in Central Virginia that take your breath away… rustic barn with a modern touch, and those chandeliers inside – ahhh-mazing! I’m telling you guys, if you haven’t visited Sorella Farms before, you just have to! Sallie and Chris live in Florida (can I say jealous?) and came home to be with family over Thanksgiving.

engagement pictures in georgetown washington dc

When Lindsay contacted me about shooting her and Thomas’ engagement session in DC, I could hardly contain my excitement. Timothy and I decided to make a trip out of it and drove to Washington DC the day before. I was so excited to meet my sweet bride and her fiancé until I got an allergy reaction the night before their photoshoot (Oh nooo! Haha). And as if that was not enough, our GPS decided to get us lost on our way to Georgetown, where the shoot was going to take place. Good thing is that we left our hotel about 40 minutes early, as we always like to be early for our sessions to View full post »

Pictures of engaged couple at West Manor EstateChelsey and  Phillip decided to have their engagement pictures taken at their wedding venue: the exquisite West Manor Estate, located in Forest, Virginia. This was a great choice because having some pictures taken at your venue before the wedding allows both the couple and photographer a chance to find the best spots for pictures! This couple was a joy to work with. I had no idea leading up to the engagement session that they were both such huge fans of Dr. Who. View full post »

lynchburg-wedding-photographer-alina-thomas1Kaitlin and Will were a blast to capture behind our camera sat the beautiful Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia. They met each other 4 years ago while working in theater and instantly became close friends. After being so close for 3 years, enjoying adventures, laughter, and growing together, they realized they were meant to be together and started dating. Another 10 months down the road, Will decided it was time to make this commitment permanent and asked Kaitlin to be his bride, which she describes as the best day ever! View full post »

lynchburg-wedding-photographer-alina-thomas001This photo session took place at the beautiful wedding venue Sorella Farms, in Evington Virginia, where Emily and Ian will be getting married later this year. We had a magnificent time capturing their engagement pictures. Emily and Ian were both laid back and easy to work with. We are very excited to see this couple tying the knot and couldn’t have hoped for the shoot to be any better. Between Ian’s patriotism and Emily’s spontaneous personality, this couple has everything they need to have a happily ever after life together. View full post »

Historic-Downtown-Lynchburg-Engagement01Lauren and Wayne first met at Radford University in 2009 during their drawing class. During their time as art students, they would frequently visit their family and friends across the state of Virginia. Lauren, who is from the Lynchburg area, introduced Wayne to some of her favorite locations downtown. One of their favorite locations became the Speakertree Record store, where Wayne would stop in during their visit to expand his collection of vinyl records. Because of their love and appreciation for small businesses, downtown Lynchburg became a favorite location for shopping, dining, and visiting. Wayne proposed to Lauren in May of 2013, just outside of the studio where they first met. They plan to bring friends and family together to the central location of Lynchburg, Virginia for their wedding in June of 2015 at the wonderful location of West Manor Estate. Both Lauren and Wayne are very excited to continue building a strong relationship and are ready for whatever is next in their life. View full post »

Valentines-Day-Engagement-Lynchburg01This engagement session is by far one of our favorites. We teamed up with I Do Events from Lynchburg, Virginia to decorate and make this session beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed the elegant feel that this styled-session permeated.

Breanna and Seth were such a joy to work with. We literally could not have picked a better couple that resembles the meaning of love than these two special individuals. It was a true pleasure getting to know this couple and seeing the chemistry between them glowing in how they treated one another.

One thing we quickly learned about them is that the saying “opposites attract” certainly fits their relationship. Breanna has a love for ducks that is certainly not shared by Seth. Seth grew up in a country setting and is looking forward to living somewhere that is more city-like after marriage, whereas Breanna grew up in town and wants to one day live in the country. We are excited to see where their new life together will take them and also whether they will be living in the city or out in the country with little ducklings waddling around! View full post »
